About Us

 

Copwatch Patrol Unit (CPU) monitors police while they are engaging the public through questioning, detainment, or arrest.

CPU are volunteers who spend their time walking the streets, observing police and witnessing/recording police interactions with citizens on camera, video-record, audio-record, and/ or paper. CPU concentrates in areas where there is high police activity. CPU also advise people of their rights.

CPU goals are to discourage and attempt to stop police brutality and harassment by;

1. Educating people and communities on their rights and their responsibilities to each other.

2. Letting police know that their actions are being observed and recorded that they may be held accountable for their actions.

3. Working to get laws and regulations in place and enforced that reduce police brutality and repression.
